The Romantic Cities mobilise/move you

Rich culture within easy reach, culinary temptations at almost every corner, quiet but not slumbering: the Romantic Cities in Rhineland-Palatinate are well worth a visit! Centrally located in Germany and therefore ideally connected, these diverse cities are affordable destinations for short trips. They are also the perfect point of departure for journeys to popular neighbouring regions such as the Black Forest, Alsace or Luxembourg. The Almond Blossom Festival in Neustadt-Gimmeldingen, located on the German Wine Route, which traditionally opens the wine-festival season, always attracts many people to the cities between the Rhine and the Moselle. Their close proximity to the birthplace of the bicycle in 1817 makes the Romantic Cities the perfect location for celebrating the 200th anniversary with enjoyable themed trips. So, as Goethe said so well in Götz von Berlichingen, “On to Speyer!” where the Palatinate starts to resemble Italy and where an eventful round trip characterised by Mediterranean charm can begin.


You can now discover Mainz, the capital of Rhineland-Palatinate and the only German member of the internationally renowned Great Wine Capitals network, in the comfort of the new, bright-yellow 360° cabrio bus. The hop-on, hop-off bus tour of the city, held simultaneously in several languages, lasts 90 minutes. There are a total of 16 stops, all located in close proximity to Mainz’s main attractions and monuments. Perhaps this could also be a transport option during the main summer event, the Mainz Wine Market (24–27 August and 31 August to 3 September). In 2018, Mainz commemorates the 550th anniversary of the death of Johannes Gutenberg, whose invention of the printing press paved the way for the mass distribution of Martin Luther’s reformation theses. Preparations for the varied programme of events celebrating this great anniversary have already begun.
